There has never been a better time to visit Amsterdam’s great trio of art museums and galleries. The Rijksmuseum, the Stedelijk and the Van Gogh Museum are all now back in business after lengthy closures for renovations. Indeed, visitors to the Rijksmuseum will hardly recognise the building which really has been restored to its former glory. In The Hague we will see the magnificent collection at The Royal Picture Gallery Mauritshuis, reopened in June 2014 after the painstaking restoration of its 17th century interiors. We also visit the Kröller-Müller Museum near Arnhem. Amongst its rich collection of 19th and 20th century paintings are over 90 works by Van Gogh. This stunning, modern gallery enjoys an unusual location amid the wild beauty of the national park De Hoge Veluwe.

Itinerary

  • Day 1 - NH Museums Quarter Hotel

    We transfer to the 3 star NH Museums Quarter Hotel which is conveniently located close to the Museumplein. The hotel has a bar, a restaurant and comfortably furnished bedrooms.
  • Day 2 - Van Gogh Museum & the Rijksmuseum

    This morning we go to the Van Gogh Museum where over 200 paintings, drawings and letters are on display. Afterwards we will visit the most important art museum in Holland, the Rijksmuseum. Designed by Pierre Cuypers and first opened in 1895, the Rijksmuseum was reopened in 2013 after a ten-year restoration project, and houses the world’s greatest collection of Dutch paintings dating from the 17th century, Holland’s Golden Age, which includes Rembrandt’s eminent ‘The Night Watch.’ We will visit Vermeer’s exhibition including ‘The Girl with the Pearl Earring’.
  • Day 3 - The Hague

    Today we drive to The Hague, a sedate and dignified town of great charm. Here we visit the Mauritshuis with its wonderful collection of works by Dutch and Flemish masters, including ‘The Goldfinch’ by Carel Fabritius. Please note the Vermeer’s ‘The Girl with the Pearl Earring’ usually at this museum, will be moved at the Rijksmuseum for the exhibition ( 10 Feb – 04 Jun 2023 )
  • Day 4 - Canal cruise & The Stedelijk Museum

    We will enjoy a canal cruise in a private saloon boat and afterwards we will visit The Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam’s main modern art museum housed in an imposing building which contains collections of paintings, drawings, sculptures and more from 1850 until today. The museum also hosts changing, and sometimes controversial, exhibitions of contemporary art.
  • Day 5 - Kröller-Müller Museum

    We drive to Arnhem this morning to visit the Kröller-Müller Museum, a superb collection displayed in a building surrounded by the great open spaces of the National Park. Helene Kröller-Müller was a collector of great taste and in her lifetime she amassed more than 11,000 objects and works. Her last major purchase was Seurat’s ‘La Chatut’ in 1922.
